Zilker Flower Festival – A Taste of Spring!

2 Apr

Spring is blooming like a speeded-up Nature film and I totally love it! It is a “everyone’s invited” Nature’s open air theater after all. Don’t ya’ll love that. Well, I certainly enjoy it from the core of my heart 🙂 Austin is on a major makeover for sure, both Personal and Professional. It has recently attracted companies such as Facebook, Apple and Google because of the current “Tax Climate” it offers. Twitter was also founded right here in the greatly popular #SXSW (South by SouthWest) home of America – Austin!

Zilker Park is a major local attraction. Zilker Botanical Garden located in heart of the Park hosted the Annual Spring Festival this weekend (Saturday the 31st March 2012 – April  1st 2012) and I am glad I Tagged it! There was something for everyone – Flowers, Activities for Kids, Live Music, Gardening talks from seasoned Gardeners and Austin’s tasty food!! Here are some beautiful shots from the show:

Oh, Forgot what this is called 😉

Now for the “Keep Austin Weird” side of the show 😉 Some interesting things that captured my attention

*Oh hello cutie you are crazy cute*

*And YOU ..are Wicked Cute too!*

Creativity at its best!

'Nuff said! Be a LongHorn and Keep Austin Weird 😉

    Hi Priconnects,
    Thanks for your thoughts, It is a “professional” SLR digital camera + tripod…but I only use it for personal use. I’d LOVE to practice my macro photography on the flowers there.

    Is that allowed in the garden? I know some places allow cameras…but not “professional” equipment. I plan to call tomorrow unless someone can answer my question before then.

    Thank you!
    Catch you again soon!
